Think Objective

Think Objective

“Positive! Positive!” That word is used so much
“Think positive!” “Stay positive!” “Keep positive!” and such
The self-appointed gurus of how to live happy lives
Say that word is how you keep from breaking out in hives

From stress, anxiety, depression, boredom, apathy
“Be positive!” they say, “Just smile and soon you will see!”
The Way of Warriors is truth and that’s not always nice
In fact, at this stage of the world, it’s terrible advice

Being positive amid so many who are scared
Lazy, jealous, close minded, untrained and unprepared
Is being close-minded yourself, it’s putting on a smile
When it is not appropriate, you soothe when you should rile

It’s pandering to comfort zones and setting them at ease
When will normals learn the point is not to simply please?
The mission that’s instilled in us the moment of our birth
Is to set out a plan and do the work to earn self-worth

“Thinking positive” is simply turning off your brain
Ignoring all the ugly things like hate and fear and pain
Using a reflex response instead of delving more
Judging with great scrutiny, embracing that tough chore

The definition of “objective” is “no influence
Upon a person or their judgement, there is no pretense”
Their feelings or opinions are not swayed when viewing facts
They are not positive or negative, they just relax

Not one end of the spectrum or the other, in between
In the middle, neutral, grey, an unbiased machine
And with that detached frame of mind that is free of emotion
The truth (sometimes so ugly) will not cause stress or commotion

If you are truly positive around things that are not
Then more power to you, but recognize that most are fraught
Many humans are dishonest with their expression
They smile when unhappy and live lives of suppression

They do not speak up against things that they know in their heart
Is selfish, ugly, insincere ‘cause they don’t want to start
An argument and have their true unhappiness revealed
And so they say, “Think positive!” and wear that phony shield

This Warrior has something else for you to dwell upon
“Objective, think objective,” let the facts be where you’re drawn
The cold, hard truth which sometimes isn’t very nice or fun
But if you’re neutral, its effect on your mood mood will be none
